Docs 4 Great Apes

As a registered charity, Docs 4 Great Apes was in need of a website that reflected their generosity and passion for improving the health of Great Ape populations, the communities that surround them, and the ecosystem that we share. In addition to the website, I helped the organization bring-to-life their detailed concept of a logo that depicts a gorilla hand reaching out for a stethoscope.


In support of great apes

The site design features a masthead with all four great ape species depicted, a cycling banner on the home page, listings of news and events, and an integrated shopping cart for event ticket sales and donations.

Secure online donations

The checkout process for online donations and tribute card orders is smooth and easy. I programmed the customized shopping cart and integrated the checkout securely using 256-bit SSL encryption and a Moneris PayPage. Transaction results are immediately displayed on the site and an HTML receipt matching the site design is automatically e-mailed to the customer.

Ticket sales and receipts

Taking advantage of the integrated shopping cart and Moneris PayPage, I programmed the site to handle the sale of over 1500 tickets for an event which featured the world-renowned primatologist, Jane Goodall. Over 500 associated tax receipts were automatically generated and e-mailed to respective recipients.
